How I spent the recall election
You guys know what? I spent election night here installing CrunchBang Linux on an old Thinkpad.
And while Wisconsin fell victim yet again to a sadly unbalanced political process broken by corporate personhood, out-of-state money, and about a million classist and rasicst one-off voters, I sat quietly watching the little progress bar float from the left to the right an make the percentage go up. It was just like watching the election returns come in, really.
And when it was all done I had a much snappier little laptop and a turd for a Governor-- which ultimately is what I would have had regardless of the outcome of the election.
Look on the bright side: I have a pretty snappy laptop here. And it runs Google Chrome and comes pre-installed with a markdown savvy text editor.
The more things change, the more things stay the same.
